The article examines the activity of the deliberative organs as a representation channel of the different social groups’ interests. Having conducted the comparative analysis of 26 Russian regions, A.Tarasenko discusses factors exerting influence over the efficiency of the public chambers created under the regional power structures. Having tested the impact of the political, socio-cultural and procedural factors, the author concludes that further evolution of the deliberative organs will heavily hinge upon the extent and direction of the state influence. The efficiency of the deliberative organs is nothing without the state support and participation, but such participation and support can be at any moment transformed into the institutional restrictions.
